Stan Miller
, the operations manager at Little Rock Wastewater Utility who was put on administrative leave Dec. 10 after a story in the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette outlined the utility's expenditures providing trailer pads and hookups for him at two sewage treatment plants, has been fired by the utility administration. His termination was at 4:30 p.m. today. 

The utility today released an performed by BKD CPAs and Advisors that includes a table of expenditures on electrical supplies, equipment rental and gravel from June 2013 to November 2013, when Miller had a trailer at the Fourche Creek Treatment Plant, totaling $11,323.11. It does not include expenses incurred from Miller's residence at the Adams Field plant. There is nothing in the report that had not been reported in the newspaper, except perhaps for the invoice breakdown. It draws no conclusion as to whether there was malfeasance, and does not mention CEO Reggie Corbitt's name except to refer to the approval of a security access cards to Miller by "the CEO." It does list the utility employees who signed off on the invoices.

The audit was apparently reviewed in the Sanitary Sewer Committee's executive session last night, at the conclusion of which the committee voted to fire Corbitt. It's unlikely the audit released today played a special role in the committee's deliberations last night. 

John Jarratt, acting utility administrative head, said he would issue a statement shortly on Miller. (Update: He issued a one sentence email saying Miller had been terminated. Not exactly illuminating.)
